Ok, so today I got my handmade gift exchange gift in the mail. It came all the way from Amy in Australia and ended up getting mailed without postage the first time…I tried to be patient!
Amy made me a lovely pillow cover that she pieced in a windmill design! And I just happened to have a 16 inch pillow form in the craft room waiting for such a cover!
Even if I had tried to make a pillow for this spot, I don’t think I would have gotten as close a match as Amy did! It matches the knitted pineapple throw my mom gave me for my graduation from nursing school, it goes great with the blue seat of the Mission oak rocker, it even picks up the yellow of the wicker table beside it!
How cute is this!
She also made me a couple of fancy giant paper clips, such cute fabrics!
And these two sweet rose cameo pins….they are so cute, I can see wearing them with lots of different outfits!
I also got some chocolate from down under too, but it was hard to tell what kind of form it had been in before, because it was 100+ degrees the day the package arrived, so the chocolate was liquid! I stuck it in the freezer though for a snack later! Cute little koala on the package! I love anything Cadbury!
So I am loving my package from Australia…everything was thoughtful and lovely!
I sent Amy a cupcake pincushion, three potholders (who can’t use those) and a flower pin.
Thanks again Linda for hosting the Handmade Gift Exchange! It is always so much fun!Ellen
